HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) -- Independence Day is fast approaching, and it's the next opportunity for people to light off fireworks legally in Michigan.
Fireworks outside legal time-frames have been a problem in some Holland neighborhoods since Memorial Day, though. City leaders say fireworks are especially dangerous in the Historic District.
Kathryn Schoon-Tanis says fireworks are taking over his daughter's sleep schedule.
"It's scary. It's a loud noise, so she wakes up crying and afraid."
Every night lately, from dusk to midnight, Mike Kopchick says feels like he's at a celebration.
"If we're sitting and watching TV, I can look out the window and see the fireworks in the air, even if they're a few blocks away...They're not little guys."
